A manager at a local seafood restaurant decides that if she has a big, one-night sale she can make more money. Even though her sale prices were calculated correctly either so low as to cut into profits nor so high as to discourage customers she did not make enough money to break even for the night.

Which of the following, if true, best explains the discrepancy above?

(A) The manager failed to advertise the sale properly to bring in more customers.
(B) There are other seafood restaurants in town.
(C) Customers thought they were getting a good deal when buying at sale price.
(D) The restaurant serves world-class seafood.
(E) The food was priced too low to make a profit.
